One of the finishing touches were to make a couple of new cushions for the bed. I got inspiration for a ruffled cushion from the tutorial here. As my fabric was a bit thicker I had to do the ruffles a little differently than the tutorial, but it still turned out not too bad.
For the ruffles I cut 3 2" strips and sewed each of them down the side andthen ironed them down flat.
Eew the colour didn't turn out right in the below picture but you can see how I pinned the ruffles in place and then stitched them in place from the back.
The seams were then sewn up. That's one cushion ready for the bed!
The next cushion I made from a large knitted cardigan that I bought at the opp shop for $3.
I cut out a large square from the back of the cardigan and then measured out the size I required and sewed a similar coloured fabric to the backside of it.
This has made a lovely soft cushion.
